That is one really sweet knitting bag with all those cases and pouches and pockets. It looks kind of like a back pack. Really great idea! My favourite colour too, RED! Can Dot adopt me???

BTW your sox are fantastic. You did a great job on them.

Yes Dotty is pretty awesome!

Well so much for knitting today, Jacob's fever is back-day 10. :(
So talkted to his doc and she had us go in for blood work, nose culture and chest x-rays. Good news is that the xrays are clear, not sure about the other yet...just a waiting game for now. Said she'd call me with the blood test results asap, and i'm not sure how long it takes them to culture snot. He seems to be feeling better though-and did AWESOME getting his blood drawn, barely a whimper, pretty dog gone good for a 3 year old. Thanks for all the prayers and hopefully we'll find something I'd really like an answer to why he's had a fever for 10 days. I'll post as soon as I know something.

I sure hope they find out what is wrong. Poor little mannie, it's so rough when they don't feel well and can't tell you why.... Hugs to you my friend!

WOW!! A new thread & five pages already! I can't keep up!! Things have been a real zoo lately, especially work... but I just had to drop by to leave a picture of my sock in progress. Did you ever get a book (I've done this with cookbooks and origami books) and see one thing in it, and immediately think, "OK, I just have to make that!!" Well that was my immediate reaction to the Cable Clock Socks in Getting Started Knitting Socks. I'm about halfway through the leg. It seems way too small, though I know all the ribbing and cables are tightening it up.

Dustina, your snowflakesocks are absolutely stunning.

SteveDallas, I love your cabled sock. It's really pretty.

As for me, I've hardly been at home the last few days. Only to sleep and check KH quickly before I have to leave to internship, so my yarn is the same tangled mess as it was. The other 2 skeins look good, I'll take pics as soon as I find the time. As for my moms socks, I'm working on the ribbing now, so I'm almost done. I guess I'll need a few more traintrips to finish them.

Dustinac, those snowflake socks are amazing. An inspiration!

SteveDallas, I love the cables. I wanted to pick a cable pattern for my first pair of socks, but decided it was probably too much for me this time around.

So, tonight I tried to start making a toddler-size sock, with the seeded rib leg ribbing, from the "socks for the family" book. I think I'm finally getting the hang of working with 4 needles, but I'm not convinced I'm handling the yarn right when switching between needles. I ended up ripping it apart since only 1/3 of the "tube" had the expected ribbed pattern. I can go by the knitting shop tomorrow while my daughters are at dance to see what I'm doing wrong.

jberry, 10 days?! I hope they figure this out soon and your son recovers quickly!

Good Morning Socksters!!

The.Knitter~ain't it neat...she did a great job...

Julie~ Prayers for Jacob and your family...I hope he feels better soon

SteveDallas~ Looks great!! One thing about using cable needles you wouldn't have any trouble trying it on right now to make sure it fits ok...with dpns you could but would have to move the sts to a holder ...

Lieke~ Remeber to stop and take a minute for yourself!!

tangle~ YAY for getting the dpns down...sorry to read that you had frog back but with their help I'm sure you will be finishing that sock soon

Jackie~ A new cartoon is suppose to start I think tomorrow... I'm not sure...Roo has been waiting for a month...it's a new little cartoon about Chinese New Year...I keep forgetting to mention that!

Well we woke up late this morning...the wind kept me up last night...and for some reason dh had trouble leaving me with covers and room enough move or do anything...so I kept waking up cause of the wind, being froze, or clinging to the side of the bed...while he was out like a light ...so I hit snooze a bit to long this morning...and sent us all into a tail spin...usually by now my house is together except running the sweeper...this morning only our room is back together...it's really starting to drive me crazy too

I'm hoping to work on my mitten today...have decided not to try and CO for a Cookie sock...will just wait for Feb and CO to a Eunny sock...or a sock that does something different on the heel

I hope you all have a great day of knitting!!
